I signed a three-month contract with fixed hours for a client. It worked out so that I had to come to the office for three working days a week.
After the third week I was called into the manager’s office:
Client: You’ve been showing a lack of commitment. I’ve noticed that you’re often not in the office 1-2 days a week.
Me: The contract I signed was for a fixed number of hours. I don’t have to come every day to meet those hours.
Client: We know that, but we still expect you to work a full week because otherwise, staff members get upset.
